The 31st annual Give a Kid a Coat campaign is now underway! Each year The Salvation Army partners with A Cleaner World, FOX 8, 1075KZL , and Rock 92 to collect new and gently used coats for distribution to children in our community whose families cannot afford to outfit them during the cold winter months. In 2017 some 6,000 coats were distributed in Forsyth, Davie, Stokes, and Yadkin Counties.
It's easy to participate! Now through Saturday, February 10, drop off coats at the A Cleaner World location nearest you. You may also donate gloves, scarves, and hats. A Cleaner World will clean and make minor repairs (if necessary) to the donated coats. Monetary gifts may also be made by clicking HERE .
Distribution will take place at 5 locations; in Winston-Salem at the Area Command Emergency Assistance office at 901 N. Cleveland Ave., the Washington Park Corps at 1411 South Broad St., the International Corps/Community Center at 2850 New Walktertown Road, and the Ken Carlson Boys & Girls Club at 2100 Reynolds Park Road. In Kernersville, distribution will take place at 770-D Park Centre Drive. Distribution days and times will be 9am-noon on five consecutive Fridays at each location; January 19 and 26 and February 2, 9, and 16.
